About Me.

Learning about my ADHD helped me understand why I often felt like a square peg forced into a round hole. It also made me appreciate that my brain is uniquely wired to be creative and curious, with a perspective based on knowledge and experience. I wanted concrete answers, and there were none readily available to me.

I work hard every day to embrace my differences. As much as I wish life fit into a tidy little box, I know that is not how things work. Life is messy. I have been through a lot of ups and downs. I was nervous to try medication but even though my doctor and I sometimes make adjustments, I have never looked back.

It took me about 3 years to read my first ADHD book- Driven to Distraction by Ned Hallowell and John Ratey. Once I did, I couldn't put it down! So many things suddenly made sense, and I went through a period of anger grieving all the guilt and sadness I felt and the time I wasted, mistakes made that could have been avoided.

For almost 25 years I have been advocating for myself, for family and friends with ADHD (and those who don't have ADHD but get a front row seat to the chaos). I develop coping strategies and put supports in place to manage symptoms and harness my strengths to improve our lives.

Education- how I got here


ADD Coach Academy/

International Coaching Federation

ADHD Coach-In-Training

As the most trusted ADHD Coaching program in the world, I chose to pursue a certification through ADDCA to give me the best chance of supporting my clients. Accredited by the ICF, ADDCA training supports coaches using focused resources with an ADHD lens. I have completed the basic coaching skills courses and am now accumulating the required hours of practical experience towards certification. 


University of Calgary

Bachelor of Arts (Psychology)- FIRST CLASS HONOURS

After 20+ years of working in accounting and finance and seeing the lack of appreciation for neurodiversities in business and the public school system, I pursued a second undergraduate degree in Psychology. My Honours thesis evaluated a group program for adults with ADHD finding differences in effectiveness for younger (18-39 years) vs older (40+) adults.


Institute of Chartered Accountants of Alberta

Chartered Accounting designation  

This became Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) in 2014.  From 1998- 2004, I performed audit and tax engagements for small, medium and large entities including family-run business, nonprofit organizations and large multinationals in a variety of industries. I then started working in organizations in financial roles including senior financial analyst, capital project consultant and corporate controller in both employment and consulting roles. In 2019, I scaled back my finance work to pursue further education.


University of Alberta

Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting)

Knowing I wanted to be a professional and not much else, I enrolled in the Faculty of Business at the U of A. It was a fun and rewarding experience and I was able to gain experience with student government through the Students' Union and Board of Governors.
